Fuel Filter

Hi Guys,
Any one of you have replaced fuel filter on 2003 V6 Altima? I want to replace it due to my mileage on it about 105,000K, have problem keep idling on first start up and kill and start it again, idle fine after that. I replaced all spark plugs and still does it so i am looking to replace fuel filter next but can't find it. Please help me or lead me to the right symptom. Thanks.

2003 Altima (AT) 3.5 SE

I was told the access was under your rear seat. There are 2 pull tabs under each end of the front of the rear seat. Tug those and the seat will come out. Then unscrew the black panel underneat and that should be your pump...

Google Answer:

The fuel filter in a 2002 Nissan Altima is located in the fuel tank and is a non-serviceable item. That is what the dealer told me. You can always call up the dealer and ask them where something is located, after all you paid thousands of dollars and bought a warrenty so don't be shy about calling them up and asking them questions. However dealers can be expensive, so shop around for the best price or find a friend who can help and save yourself a bunch of money.

Try a bottle of Gumout Regane or some SeaFoam and see if that doesn't help. I use a bottle of Regane right before any oil change and i've not had any problems. Make sure to pick up the clear bottle. As for me. I've got a 05' 2.5S w/ a little over 100K miles.

p.s. the bottle should look like this http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/...500_AA230_.gif

Is what you should be looking for. And yes, the fuel filter is in the tank.

Dan

p.s. Your air filter has been changed every 12-15k miles right?

Gotta be careful with the Seafoam. A few of the guys have had some real problems after using it.

Traded 10/10/11 for a 2012 Hyundai Genesis Track Coupe.

Not sure if this is the problem, but I know on both my suburban and my brothers Tahoe, we both had that same problem. It would kill immediately after startup then run fine after the second start. Or sometimes you would have to crank it for a long time before it would start, but run fine after it was started. It turned out to be the fuel pressure regulator on both trucks. So I'm guessing its a possibility thats your problem. Its worth a shot to check into it. Just my 2cents.

Could be moisture in the fuel line. put some "dry gas" in on your next fuel up. i dunno the actual name but the description should be something along the lines of "gets rid of moisture in your gas". its probly near the fuel injector cleaner section of the gas station.
